P0335 CHEVROLET - Crankshaft Position Sensor 'A' Circuit Malfunction
- Faulty crankshaft position sensor
- Crankshaft position sensor harness is open or shorted
- Crankshaft position sensor circuit poor electrical connection

On some 2011-2015 Volt and 2014 ELR models, DTC P0335 (Crankshaft Position Sensor Circuit) and/or P0336 (Crankshaft Position Sensor Performance) may be stored in history in the T6 Power Inverter Module (Hybrid Powertrain Control Module, or HPCM).
If DTCs P0335 and/or P0336 are stored in history, check that ground locations G106 (engine block) (Below Figure - A) and G113 (drive unit case) (Below Figure - B) are clean and tight. On rare occasions, the bolt hole for G113 may not be drilled to the proper depth, which will cause the ground bolt to bottom out in the hole and result in low clamp load on the ground eyelet.
When is the code detected?
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Possible lack/loss of Power
- Engine may stall while driving
P0335 Chevrolet Description
The Crankshaft Position Sensor (CKP) works in conjunction with a 24X reluctor wheel mounted on the rear of the crankshaft. The CKP sensor has a B+ power supply, a ground, and a signal circuit. As the crankshaft rotates, the reluctor wheel teeth interrupt a magnetic field produced by a magnet within the sensor. The sensor's internal circuitry detects this and produces a signal which the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) reads. The PCM uses this signal to accurately measure crankshaft velocity which is a variable used in order to detect misfire, spark and, fueling.
